Lions' Stevan Ridley: Signing made official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Detroit Lions have officially announced their signing of Stevan Ridley .

Adding Ridley on a one-year deal gives the Lions a veteran presence in their backfield, helping fill the void created by the team's release of Joique Bell. Now further past the right ACL/MCL injury that he sustained in Week 6 of the 2014 season, Ridley provides the team with a between-the-tackles option to complement Ameer Abdullah and pass-catching back Theo Riddick. In order to secure a key role in the team's backfield in 2016, Ridley will have to hold off the likes of Zach Zenner and George Winn, but if he's healthy, the 2011 third-rounder give the team's backfield a capable and experienced power back.

Lions' Stevan Ridley: Will sign with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stevan Ridley announced he will be signing with the Detroit Lions on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

The specifics of the deal are still unknown, but Ridley will head to Detroit where he will compete with the likes of Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick for carries. Ridley rushed for 90 yards on 36 attempts in eight games last season with the Jets after he returned from ACL and MCL injuries in early November.

Stevan Ridley: Set to visit Lions
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ridley will visit the Lions on Tuesday, the Detroit News reports.

Coming off a torn ACL in October of 2014, Ridley gained 90 yards on just 36 carries in eight games with the Jets last season. He may be in better condition with the injury further behind him, but he'll probably have to compete for a roster spot wherever he ends up signing. Detroit would offer some potential for a significant role, as the Lions could use an early-down/short-yardage back to replace Joique Bell.

Jets' Stevan Ridley: 29 rushing yards in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stevan Ridley had nine rushes for 29 yards and caught both of his past targets for 0 yards Sunday against the Bills.

Ridley spent the first half of the season on the PUP list and he struggled greatly in his first six games, indicating he wasn't likely fully recovered from his ACL injury. However, in his last two games, he averaged four yards per carry and appeared to be much closer to his pre-injury form. He'll be a free agent this off-season, and he'll hope to find a role in a RBBC. Depending on his landing spot, he has some sleeper appeal as he'll have a full off-season without having to rehab his knee.

Jets' Stevan Ridley: Rushes for 36 yards in Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stevan Ridley rushed seven times for 36 yards Sunday against the Patriots.

After rushing for 1.3 yards per attempt over his first six games, Ridley had some extra juice against his former team, running for 5.1 yards per tote. With Chris Ivory struggling lately, Ridley may be able to earn extra carries next week as a between-the-tackles thumper.
